Very nice speech and I have no reason to believe that he is not expressing his feelings.
However, his anger is very mis-directed. No background check or ban on weapons would have made one ounce of difference in any of the mass shootings.
I think he is right in that there are things that government and school districts can do to reduce the loss of life in these cases. For one thing they should listen to the experts like NRA and NSSF.
Here is a short list of things that will make a difference:
1) Allow teachers and school employees that are qualified and trained be armed. If the principal of this school would have had a tool to protect the school, we would never have heard of Sandy Hook.
2) Stop these “No Gun Zones”, what they really do is to make the bad guy know that there will be no resistance in thoes areas.
3) Start teaching the merrits of gun ownership and gun usage in all schools. The use of a gun for protection from criminals and for consititional issues should be part of every government class.
4) Vote out the anti-gun mayors, start with MAIG members.
5) Support more local gun safety classes and more shooting areas. Remove all local/state/federal taxes on guns and ammo.

Is he someone special? He just said, every gun he bought he had a background check…Same as every individual in the United States that buys a gun at a store or gun show. So , what is he talking about?

I too am an Arkansan, but this fellow is ill informed.

Sen. Pryor voted against the Manchin-Toomey bill which would have expanded background checks to include all private transfers between citizens. Sen. Pryor voted FOR the Grassley bill, which would have added more mental health records to the back ground check system, something that is pretty spotty right now. Some states have only added a few hundred.

While I feel for his loss, he fails to make clear how the Toomey bill would have prevented his daughter’s death.

This is nothing more than a sleazy political attack, using an ill-informed grieving father to do it.

“I own a variety of guns” <- aka he owns a variety of 22 LR rifles and handguns judging by his stupid hate and his naive hatred for the NRA

Oh and I can not take anyone seriously who has a bear in the cave, especially one that big, I believe he is just getting mental in his age.
